Here is a collection of links related to performing a Github pull request, including a few different versions of that workflow:
Here are some brief notes related to handling some comments on a Github pull request. Every other pull request I’ve done has been simply accepted, but I’m currently working through a conversation related to a large pull request. Here are the notes:
git fetch wasn’t showing the comments/changes I just approved on Github, but this set of commands successfully pulled those changes from Github and brought them onto my system:
git branch #to list the branches git checkout my-branch-name #switch to my branch git pull origin my-branch-name
I haven’t worked on many open source projects, so my ability to fork a Github project, pull it down, create a branch, push that branch back, and then submit a pull request are weak, at best.
That being said, I’ve done it a few times lately, so I’m getting better at it. Today was a very smooth process, so I thought I’d make these notes while they’re still fresh in my mind.
